#15911 tiger woods interviews

Posted by CDBomb on 23 March 2010 - 01:18 PM

As much as I agree with some of this, he is still entitled to privacy with his wife. The question everybody wants answered is what happened Nov. 27? I don't see why he needs to answer that. It's his and Elin's business. We know he crashed, the accident, and the stuff in the police report. But why do we as a society feel we are entitled to know what he and his wife discuss. The golf world is above Tiger and will always be okay. Tiger in tournaments is going to be great. How that hampers TV contracts, I don't get. If he had stayed away all year, then yes, I would agree. But he's not. The golfing world has other stars, and true die hard fans won't leave. Look at the NBA with Kobe. They are riddled with scandals and problems, yet everyone still watches and attends games. I don't see much suffering there. I can't see how his sex scandal damaged the economy. Nobody is spending money to begin with. It's already damaged. Economists and Government officials don't care what Tiger Woods does, there focus is on Health care and stimulating spending. Like I said, people will still buy Gillette whether Tiger uses it or not, same with Gatorade, Nike, Tag-Heuer and all his other sponsors and ex-sponsors. They have a status in the market that cannot be broken. Brand loyalty- once people start using it, they become reluctant to switch or never do because they trust the brand. Yes Tiger helped them sell, but I don't see these investors being upset anytime that their bank accounts have taken a huge hit.

Mike, I don't care about Elin. (Well, I do, but I agree that her life is private.) I don't care about Tiger's conversations with Elin. Has anybody ever had a chance to challenge Tiger about what "he and his wife discuss"? Not that I know of. Most writers that I read, don't care either. The question(s) about Tiger's conversations with Elin might be about number 226 on my list of questions for Tiger.

There are much better questions:
Who linked you up with Dr. Galea? Why Dr. Galea? What did Dr. Galea do for you in Florida? Why did he visit you in Florida? What medications have you taken since your knee surgery? What medications have you taken while playing golf professionally? What can you say to people who see the growth of your physique very much the same way as they view baseball players who have mostly all confessed to using PED's under duress? Do you understand why people are viewing your PED-denials with suspicion? Do you understand why you have a huge public-credibility problem? The Thanksgiving car-crash begs understanding. The police report outlines the inexplicable path of your Escalade. But provides no other details. It is not "all in the police report" as you say. What exactly were you doing, that led to that crash? Were you drunk, or under the influence of drugs? Forget about any "Sexual Addiction" treatment. Are you undergoing, or have you undergone, any drug addiction treatment?

#57650 2013 US Open at Merion Golf Club

Posted by Texsport on 16 June 2013 - 10:15 PM

All credit to the winner!

However, I think that the USGA went way overboard in protecting Merion.

Wet rough 6 inches deep, including around the greens, out of bounds 6 feet from the fairway, blind tee shots, invisible water hazards, and green speeds varying from one green to the next would make any course nearly impossible.

A course like this certainly won't help inspire new golfers to take up the game, and doesn't represent the game anyone in the world plays.

Luck becomes way too big a factor with this kind of setup.

If Merion was set up even close to this all the time, the club would have zero golf members!

Posted by pinzer on 08 January 2011 - 11:01 PM

I ordered two of these little guys (22* and 18*) after talking with Marcus. I can't wait to get the heads. Marcus is bending them to a lie angle of 55* and a face angle of 1* open... They're going to be some nasty, anti-left hybrids for sure!

#13620 Tiger to end months of silence on Friday

Posted by hitsalittle on 28 February 2010 - 10:05 PM

Looks like some people want the rules of BSG posting and a criminal courtroom to be roughly equivalent (Petter!!!) - people are allowed to have different viewpoints here, or even to be flat out wrong. Seriously, I love ya, guy, but you are downright defensive when it comes to Tiger - almost reflexively so. My opinion, and only my opinion, based on nothing but my gut and what I know about PED usage (see post in the "other" Tiger thread), is that I suspect he's used some form of illegal PED at some point. I have no proof and I don't intend to do anything more than share my gut feeling in this post - it ain't gospel, and I don't intend it to be either written or taken that way - I understand there are plenty of reasons why a reasonable person would not share my opinion, and that's ok - when everyone starts agreeing with me, we all have reason to be concerned.

Again, just a gut feeling - and, I might add, I make no judgements about it if it were true (which I have no way of knowing) - if it meant another $2M or more annually to me resulting from better performance in terms of stamina, flexibility, strength, or some combination thereof, and a doctor that I trusted devised a program with minimal side effects and demonstrated to me why I could never be caught, I would possibly do it - and that's certainly possible (the minimal side effects and increased performance part - the not caught part I'm not so sure about - I let my subscription to PED Testing Avoidance mag run out). So, IF he used, I make no judgements. Just like the sex scandal - I would like to think that nearly limitless money and power wouldn't corrupt me - but I can't guarantee I wouldn't interrupt a meal at Perkins to bang a hot waitress if I were in Tiger's shoes. I'm willing to try (well, the money part, but not the fame part) to see how strong I am if anyone wants to write me a check, though!

Petter, I hope you know I'm not attacking you at all - without your posts, this place would be like a church on Super Bowl Sunday...keep 'em coming. Of course, I'm starting to wonder if you're not connected to Camp Tiger in some way given your vociferous defense against these unwarranted and baseless allegations about St. Eldrick...if so, can I get a tour issued goodie from him?

#13384 Tiger to end months of silence on Friday

Posted by jjj on 26 February 2010 - 08:49 AM

NO!! He didn't!!

This proves you haven't done your homework. Tiger's PRP treatment from Dr. Galea was not illegal.

As for whether I believe who has or has not used PED's of any kind is irrelevent. Everyone is innocent
until proven guilty. With people like you always calling someone a rat just because there are other rats
doesn't do any good. It's a meaningless approach. Get some FACTS and make an astute argument. What
you have done here pales in comparison. Slinging insults at me and giving me massive negative reps is
not the way to a valid point. I'm getting the impression you are only interested in agitating the situation
with your hare-brained scheme to make Tiger look as bad as possible. Have at it, but, not too many will
take you seriously. ;)

I never said the treatment was illegal, that is your mistake. Galea is not licensed to practice medicine in FLA that is illegal and why would he solicite Galea and or other trainer's with ties to Balco. Sorry but no extra homework needed as those are facts and I have no idea what negative reps are or how to apply them. Unsure as to how you formulate opinions but this reaks of wrong doing no matter how you choose to spin it.

Posted by petter7 on 26 February 2010 - 12:39 AM

Wow, thank you for setting me straight!!! How dare I or anyone question the player formally know as Tiger. I guess you believed every althete that has made the same criptic denial when asked about the usage. Seriously though why wouldn't he use? The arguement that he wouldn't because of the legallity is humourous, he did receive the treatment from Galea in an illegal manner. No?

i didn't realize i had to have facts to back up personal opinion.


Is this your first day on the internet? If someone agrees, no facts needed; if someone disagrees you need 15 double-blinded cross referenced peer reviewed studies.

Get it together man, you need to KNOW this stuff..........

I love BSG and "troll" it on a weekly/daily basis.

The information you get on here and the advice posted is from real golfers...
That being said I will remain a loyal bsg'er

Thanks Hoss for all the hardwork and keeping the site alive.
